In response to this inquiry I have talked to several vendors about
this since this company stopped making this "Cook and Stir" in
Canada a few years back. When I worked at the Library of Congress we
found no substitute for is product in America but a similar machine
is sold through department stores in France and I have known a few
people including the Library who got them from people traveling in
France. The problems are they cost about $40.00 American, you need a
$50.00 step up step down transformer to use them and they are not as
powerful . You can not make as much paste but if you cook in small
batches then by all means, find someone on staff going to France. I
can send you information about the transformer and even our modified
paste recipe if you do go this route. Good luck,
